American pillowcases vs. Australian pillowcases

Look carefully. Look at the ends. Look at the openings. What do you see (or don’t see)?

On the left, you see a pillow sticking out of the end of the bottom pillowcase, and a floppy opening at the end of the top pillowcase. On the right, you see neat & tidy pillowcases with pillows tucked inside the ends. How is this possible? Clever Australians!

Pillow cases in Australia are made with an extra pocket of material at the open end to tuck over the pillow. See example below:

It keeps the pillow inside and makes it look nice. Why haven’t American pillowcase manufacturers (or others around the world) picked up on this detail yet?
